Explorations in Ottoman Prehistory provides a new understanding of early Ottoman history. Specifically, Lindner investigates who the Ottomans were, where they came from, where they settled and why, as well as what sort of relationships they had with their neighbors in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries. Flawed sources and skepticism among historians has led to a general sentiment of doubt among scholars as to how, or whether, historians can sufficiently discuss the origins of the Ottomans. Many feel that the lack of sources makes constructing any history futile. Lindner's careful treatment of these unusual sources, and the development of new ones more than adequately addresses these concerns and makes a strong case for the need to examine and trace early Ottoman history. Professor Linder's lively writing style makes this an appealing read for both students and specialists of medieval studies, as well as for general readers with an interest in Ottoman history.
